In a new video, Mark Hamill and special guests announce the 2021 Star Wars: Force For Change and FIRST Game Changers program.

What’s Happening:

  • The Star Wars: Force for Change program is once again partnering with FIRST for another year of inspiring the next generation of heroes and innovators.
  • The video announcement features Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself, who applauds FIRST alumni who have been helping their communities with the challenges of 2020.
  • Mark Hammill is joined by Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand), and Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano) who reinforce the diversity goal of the program, which seeks to level the playing field across geographic borders, economic factors, and gender.
  • Last year’s “Build My Droid” program extended STEM programs to over 100 countries and featured over a half-a-million youth from around the world.
  • The new program, FIRST Game Changers Powered by Star Wars: Force for Change, takes on a sports theme and challenges kids to “Redefine, revolutionize, and change the way the game is played.”
